Life Below Zero: Next Generation Cast: Who is in it?
‘Life Below Zero: Next Generation’ throws the spotlight on a bunch of young survivalists who have moved from the city to live their lives off-the-grid. We have Michael Manzo, a Mi’kmaq Indian, attempting to follow the footsteps of his ancestors while trying to fend off natural resources. Next, we meet the couple, Chris and Jessi Morse, residing in Fairbanks. But they want to move 100 miles away to their remote cabin, which can be accessed only through helicopters. The cabin was built by Chris’ dad in 1974 and now, he wishes to spend his adult days in the same place he had grown up in.
Alex Javor was inspired to leave his contemporary lifestyle after watching ‘Life Below Zero’. His dream is to learn about subsistence techniques in remote Alaska without using any modern power tools. He and his Swedish Elkhound, Sipsey, live in Bear Creek. Finally, we have Brent Sass and Ida Mortensen staying in Eureka. Brent is a successful dog musher and has been a double-time winner as the Yukon Quest. The couple spends most of their time caring, training, and mushing their dog teams — named Wild and Free Mushing.
